  1. Around St.Helens

    Wasn't Gladys Appleton murdered in the grounds of the Elms?
  2. Just read this and it says St Helens is one of the worst places in the country. Is it because Rainhill has shut down? http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/16033527.Mental_and_physical_health_of_St_Helens_residents_among_worst_in_England__says_report/?ref=rss
  3. Vicky park faces.

    I think I put these on here a few years ago. Anyone remember?
  4. I worked behind the bar in the Cotham Arms around 1971- 1972. Reg Gregory was the Landlord, but I cannot remember coach trips from the pub.

I remember going up Baxters Lane from Robins Lane to Sutton Oak Engine sheds (Morrissons now) when my dad worked in the sheds. I do not remember seeing Stamina foods in the mid fifties.

  12. Whist Drives? Anyone remember them? I do but never been to one. Anyone been to one?
  13. Around St.Helens

    There is a very good band playing the clubs and pubs around St Helens and Wigan called Schooner
  14. I am sure some of you will remember Clock Face Crisps. The time on the clock face on the packet was 18 minutes past one. Does anyone know why this particular time was shown?
